Adam’s sin is Joseph’s sin is our sin
The Deceiver wasn’t lying when it said
the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil
would make us like God.
We were created in Their Divine image, male and female alike
Thanks to nearby Tree of Life, we had eternity
to be transformed more and more into Their likeness
But we grew impatient
We knew our Divine calling, but we wanted it know
and so we took it before our Kairos time
and it destroyed us.
But God’s story is one of redemption:
sending Their Son,
then the Holy Spirit
to wipe the past clean
and start the journey anew
so that we could become more and more like Them.
You can take what you want from me
for I was born with a primal glory
so even if everything I have is gone
I still have that
always did, always do, always will
it is a God-given gift
the seal of the incarnate Divine
placed upon my skin like stigmata,
letting the Earth know I am His
and He is mine and we are ours together.
Democracy is scary
a thousand voices screaming out into the void
every time we trust the masses
we soon skulk back in fear
what if they’re wrong?
but when the pendulum swings the opposite direction
there is no worse fate:
closed hearts, closed minds
an iron fist clutching the intrepid heart of a teenage nation.
Lady Liberty, hold your torch high
shine the way for all to see
the glorious future that waits for
us who dare to let you lead.
Over and over again,
Jesus tells us who He is,
what He will do
And even though we acknowledge
what He is saying
and His ability to do it,
we are still mystified by Him.
Mary His own mother,
every single one of us
are amazed by Him
when He makes good His promises
maybe because we have a seed of cynicism
but more likely because Jesus,
God, the Holy Spirit
Triune and Complete
remain incomprehensible and awesome
because that is their nature.
They are greater,
they are above
The Majestic that lives right beside us
Let us meet Them in the secret place
where they work wonders
and hear the whispers of Their heart to ours,
so that we too might be amazing.
and the glory.
Contemplating the servants of the Divine
the rich history
gives you a greater appreciation,
a holy community
to draw from when you feel alone
Verily you carry the seed of these heroes past!
Live in light of that ineffable truth.
look upon my hands
and wash them clean
my eyes and set them ablaze
and shoot it upon into the sky
into the heavenly realms,
lock it away where no demon of hell
can touch it.
Now, I am yours
I am mighty in You
Teach me to do Thy will
In Acts, we see the Holy Spirit descending upon the disciples in tongues of fire. In Isaiah, we see an angel branding the tongue of the prophet before sending him out.
We who know God, who belong to His family, have His words on our lips. By His power and will, we speak wisdom and prophesy. All insight and encouragement we may give goes forth directly from Him.
As the saying goes, “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.” We must guard our hearts and minds, so only good goes out of it.
This of it this way, God spoke and the world was created. John calls Jesus Christ the very Word of God. This same Jesus brings our dead souls back to life, works miracles, and leads the way through life temporal into life eternal.
Today, let us meditate on the power of words and speak what is good.
Bless you, my friends. God is good.
